Laptop for Kent: recommend using the partnership w/ Dell?

Hey I wanted to find out about getting a laptop for Kent for the fall. Kent has a program set up with Dell where you get some nominal discount, and also a 3 year warranty.

The discount is not really that big of a deal, but I can see how the 3 year warranty could be a big help. For example, they say that if your laptop stops working, you can get it looked at within a few hours, and you can even get a loaner right then. I don't remember the details but it was some good on-site warranty. If I bought an HP or a Toshiba, I doubt I could get that level of warranty service.

Is this really that big of a deal? Do most Kent students go with the Dell deal or do people shop on their own?
